Tale o Peter Kinnen, The

Lynne McGeachie

The tale of Peter Rabbit, published in 1902, was Beatrix Potter’s first book, expanded from an illustrated letter she had sent to a young friend who was ill.

One hundred years later, the classic tale of naughty Peter Rabbit’s escape from Mr McGregor’s garden still brings to children all over the world the pleasure that it gave to its very first reader.

This translation uses words and phrases from a wide area of Scotland to express in Scots a child-orientated version of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
